A new Star Wars children’s book might have revealed the opening scene for the latest movie ahead of its release, but it could be showing much more.
The Star Wars: Look and Find activity book includes two spreads featuring Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and one of them features Rey, Luke Skywalker, and the many creatures of Ahch-To. But some particular phrasing might have revealed just who the titular Last Jedi actually is.
The end of Star Wars: The Force Awakens showed Rey track down the isolated Skywalker on the ancient planet, and ever since the next movie’s title was revealed fans have been wondering and debating what it could possibly mean.
Text from the book could give it away, as it states (via Star Wars News Net):
Starkiller Base is vanquished, but Kylo Ren has escaped. Thanks to Rey and her friends, BB-8 brought Luke Skywalker’s coordinates back to the Resistance. On their behalf, Rey travels to the planet Ahch-To, hoping to enlist Luke’s help. While Rey persuades the last Jedi to join the Resistance, look for these rocky features.

It might be nothing, we might be reading into this too deep (hey, it’s our job), but the phrasing from this children’s book might have let a crucial detail slip about the new Star Wars plot.
If Luke is indeed the last Jedi referenced in the film’s title, that begs all sorts of questions about Rey’s future and what role she will have in the battle between Light and Dark sides. Will she become something new altogether?
We’ll find out when Star Wars: The Last Jedi premieres in theaters December 15.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi is the second film in the new Star Wars sequel trilogy that began with Star Wars: The Force Awakens in 2015. The film will deal with Luke training Rey to become a, and possibly the last, Jedi. Meanwhile, the Resistance, including Poe Dameron and First Order defector Finn, continues to fight against the First Order, led by General Hux, while Supreme Leader Snoke and his Dark Side follower Kylo Ren continue their mysterious plot.
